The world’s first Colorist Summit took place in late October at the beautiful Novotel Nusa Nua resort in Bali. The event was made possible by sponsors Blackmagic Design, Eizo, G-Technology, and SpectraCal.
Colorists from around the globe came for a week of learning and networking. Many brought their partners and stayed for a holiday afterwards.
The Summit started with the one day Colorist Boot Camp. Four individual 60-minute lectures from Kevin and myself, covering topics such as HDR/ACES, creating looks, industry challenges, to 10 Resolve tips you cannot do without. Questions were encouraged throughout the day, and the students really embraced this, which was great to see.
The session concluded at the poolside bar for more Q&A, before flowing nicely into the Bali Colorist Mixer. Great prizes were on offer from Hedge for Mac, Resolve Killer tips, Blackmagic Design, G-Tech, and FXPHD.

Testimonials from 2017 Color Summit Students
After a rest day the training week kicked off in two adjoining conference rooms, both equipped with Eizo ColorEdge monitors and G-Tech storage. We hosted a variety of classes over 6 days. The training was mixed with lunches, dinners and beach BBQs.
Students came from the UK, Sweden, Holland, Russia, South Africa, India, Thailand, Australia, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines and of course Indonesia
Here’s a sampling of what they said:
“Loved everything about the ICA Colorist Summit in Bali 2017! The social aspect and the conversations had around lunch and dinner were just as rewarding as doing the classes. Location was great as was the facilities. Looking forward to the next one.”
“A perfect way to network with colorists from around the globe and share problems and solutions in a relaxed atmosphere.”

“Bali Colorist Summit, was a awesome experience, meet other colorists from all around the globe was unique. Great opportunity to share skills and experiences. I’d like do it again next year ;)”
“Highly recommend doing an ICA course. The level of knowledge from the instructors is astounding and they come with years of experience. More then the course content, you will find trade secrets, tips and tricks being revealed that no online course or YouTube tutorial will ever reveal.”
“Definitely a worthwhile experience and I would certainly be looking forward to attending again in the near future. Kevin is amazing instructor, and the ability to share and teach from his wealth of experience and knowledge made the workshop that much more”
